For those of you that have followed my RV building Project I have made 1 more upgrade. I added gate openers to the gates, a gate lock and an entrance keypad. With this update I don't even need to get out of the RV car when come and go. No more getting wet opening the gates or garage doors.

The keypad has a temporary code option with a max of 7 days usage. This allows me to Code the UPS guy for delivery and the code is removed after the expiration period that I set. I can add up to 25 different permanent and temporary codes.

I had to fab up the mounting bracket on the gate. I got the steel from Tractor Supply and the muffler clamps to mount the steel to the gate from Autozone. Drill a few holes, some spray paint and your done.

Wiring it up is nothing more than follow the directions in the book. I opt'd to run electricity from the power pole to the fence so I could use the provided trickle charger. I installed a $6 Wal Mart battery box and one of their $20 lawn mower batteries. It handles both openers. Each unit comes with 1 remote. I keep one in the toad and the other in the rig.

I almost forgot... You have to run two wires to the Slave from the Master. Due to the fact I didn't want to tear up my driveway I ran some PCV conduit through the culvert to hook up the Slave opener. It's all water proof and whole lot cheaper and easier that tearing up the drive.

Only you Oemy, only you.

Where did you get the openers ? Are they hard wired under ground or radio operated ?
